Online Basketball Betting Odds:
Los Angeles Clippers
The Clippers enter tonight’s matchup sporting a 36-29 record that ranks them 2nd overall in the Pacific Division but 7th in the Western Conference. With a ½ game lead over the 8th seeded San Antonio Spurs, the Clippers playoff standing is far from secure. Facing the Lakers this Monday night, will the Clippers be able to improve their playoff standing this evening? Tonight’s online basketball betting odds don’t seem to think so, seeing as how they’re pegging Los Angeles as the underdog here. Nevertheless, the Clippers are 7-3 in their last 10 versus the Lakers. With that in mind, there’s plenty of reason to bet on the underdog this evening. After all, the Lakers have been pretty weak defensively without Lonzo Ball in the lineup.
Players to Watch: Tobias Harris (20.9 ppg, 7.9 rpg, 2.7 apg), Lou Williams (19.8 ppg, 2.9 rpg, 5.4 apg), and Danilo Gallinari (18.9 ppg, 6.0 rpg, 2.4 apg).
Los Angeles Lakers
The Lakers enter tonight’s matchup sporting a losing 30-33 record on the year. That lackluster record ranks Los Angeles 4th overall in the Pacific and 10th in the Western Conference. At the present time, the Lakes are 4 ½ games behind the 8th seeded Spurs. Having said that, it’s pretty obvious that the Lakers playoff chances are slipping through their hands. Unless LeBron has something to say about it, the Lakers will be watching the playoffs from home this year.
Players to Watch: LeBron James (27.0 ppg, 8.7 rpg, 8.1 apg), Kyle Kuzma (18.9 ppg, 5.6 rpg, 2.5 apg), and Brandon Ingram (18.3 ppg, 5.1 rpg, 3.0 apg).
